Grammy winner and former American Idol finalist Mandisa returns to the music scene with Out of the Dark, her first album in four years. The record features Mandisa’s soulful voice and some of Christian music’s top artists such as Kirk Franklin, TobyMac, Britt Nicole, and Jeremy Camp. The energy this album brings will make listeners want to dance.
Mandisa is transparent and vulnerable about her three-year journey with depression after she lost a dear friend to breast cancer. The single “Unfinished” is a popular radio song that centers on God’s unfinished work. Another strong offering, “Bleed the Same,” calls for unity among people. This hopeful record speaks to people who struggle with depression or know folks who battle it. (Sparrow)
